  1. It’s heartbreaking to see Minneapolis in flames, but when people are ignored long enough & as a result feel helpless it is only a matter of time until something like this happens. Sadly, sometimes it takes riots to get the attention of those with power that can put a stop to these senseless killings.

      Way way way wrong two wrongs do not make a right
      The rioters don’t even give a crap about this guy , they’re opportunist that’s all

    • Uh huh. It couldn’t be just looters stealing free stuff? Literally 100s of race riots over the last 50 years.

      Oh you really don’t understand how this works. Those in power are happy to see these riots. It means they’re purging their anger and will soon go back to their passive state. Angry people are easy to control. And they’re burning their own neighborhood down. Not hurting anyone in power.

      @FirstName LastName I wish more people were capable of understanding this!

  2. People here should be equal, this police 👮‍♀️ killed him and he should be charged with murder!

    • He should be dragged out of his home by that angry mob, is what should happen. He’s a sadist, and it probably turned him on to do what he did. We need to get the secret Black Boule members out of our politics and media, too.

    • All four of them should. If a black person killed a white with three pals standing around watching the murder, they would ALL be in prison. America is a disgrace. The country is burning, sick and dying and the leaders have no accountability what so ever. The world watches in total disgust at the obvious collapse of a once powerful nation.

    • Pensa Simpson | May 29, 2020 at 8:26 AM | Reply

      And all his accomplices who participated and watched– are prosecuted as well. 75% of this country needs to stand up now in solidarity with our African American and all colors now. It is time to say We have had enough!!

    I’m just an old (white) British veteran. Seeing George Floyd being
    tortured to death by so called law enforcement officers, brought tears
    to my eyes. Seeing that man begging for help and the arrogant officer
    just ignoring him, that really hurt my heart. I was a soldier, I did my
    best to protect those who couldn’t protect themselves. I would have been
    proud, if I could have stopped this, even if I got harmed by doing so. I
    love and respect you black Americans. I detest hate and racism. Those
    murderers must be punished, not only for murder, but for committing
    murder as a police officer, fully abusing the law and trust you’re
    supposed to uphold.

      If there is any good coming out of this, it is that there are many young white youths who are disgusted by what happened and are joining the black youth in protesting. No human being of whatever color should fail to see the dehumanizing and barbaric behavior of these thugs who parade as law-enforcement officers. The older white Americans whose generation is fast passing away seem to have given up to do the right things about race relations in the US. The likes of Trump and Moscow Mitch will not be around forever. What sort of legacy do they want to leave to their grandchildren? Hopefully, this chain of hatred and bigotry will be broken, as it can not be allowed to go on like this forever.

    • @Hazel McCloy You illustrate your indoctrination, Hazel. (1) Trump said on tape, “They let you do it if you’re star.”
      LET YOU DO IT. That’s consent. Don’t think so? Ever watch the groupies after a rock/rap concert? Or a handsome billionaire? You must be thinking of Biden. (2) The mocking of a disabled person was debunked a long time ago. Research the event, then come back and apologize for being such a media dupe.

    • @Scientific Devil Petty arrests…..you mean like forgetting to wear a mask or social distance?
      Considering your demographics, have you learned how to speak Arabic yet?

    • @Chris Sanders Sorry, Chris. SOMEBODY has give you good people the whole story. The media won’t.

  11. Sad thing is, after all this quietens down.. nothing will have changed. It’ll keep happening.

    Stonewall was a riot, and so this will be too. It’s sad, but America has a history of ignoring every single plea but violence.

    • Haley Warner | May 29, 2020 at 11:05 AM | Reply

      The rioting over the killing of George Floyd doesn’t compare to what happened with Stonewall. Or are you deliberately trying to be offensive to black people for some reason?

    • “No this is not a riot this is people tired of being murdered and hunted down like dog’s!!❗😟😒😳” with the hold world 🌎 watching 👀”😳

    • Madison Macloud | May 29, 2020 at 3:23 PM | Reply

      Haley Warner absolutely not. I’m sorry that I came off that way. I’m not comparing the two as the same event, I’m simply saying that when communities feel, time and time again, that they are not heard in America, things often come to riots. I completely understand that racism is an epidemic and that these issues are different. That being said, I was just trying to say that this is far from the first time that a community has had to resort to riots to be heard and seen. I hope that makes sense. Never ever my intention to put down or be offensive towards the black community.

    • Haley Warner | May 29, 2020 at 3:54 PM | Reply

      @Madison Macloud Apology accepted. For a moment there I thought you were trying to switch the narrative to one specific “community”, i.e, lgbt, by referring to Stonewall. Seems people do that a lot nowadays and it is quite offensive to black people.

    • Madison Macloud | May 29, 2020 at 3:57 PM | Reply

      Haley Warner totally makes sense <3

  13. It was murder, and needs to be treated as such. But when you have a racist for a president , I doubt it will be

    • Gopher Facts | May 29, 2020 at 6:46 AM | Reply

      I doubt Bill Barr will get involved, because George Floyd was not a friend of the president

    • yeah thats the root of it, the other part are the people who put him in, they need to go. or else it will keep happening and the bar will keep being pushed lower. there are some fundamental choices that need to be made soon.

    It’s time people stops taking oaths when they get a position of authority. They’re a total sham. From the president down they take an oath to defend and protect then the spit in your eye.
    Here’s the joke in this case:
    “I, do solemnly, sincerely and truly declare and affirm that I will faithfully discharge the duties of the office of constable with fairness, integrity, diligence and impartiality,and that I will uphold fundamental human rights and accord equal respect to all people, according to law.”

  19. Time to arrest these former officers. We all have eyes and could clearly see what was done to George Floyd. What more do you need to arrest these men? Justice for George!

  20. everyone that was a witness at the crime scene needs to call in and file
    a complaint against the officers involved. this will force their hand
    to arrest.
